Universal is hoping for a hat trick with The Bourne Legacy, which marks just the latest action flick featuring Jeremy Renner released in theaters over the past year (after Mission: Impossible – Ghost Protocol and The Avengers); Legacy is also the first franchise vehicle headlined by Renner. It’s possible that the Oscar-nominee/rising star and Jason Bourne actor Matt Damon could join forces in a fifth Bourne movie - assuming the masses are receptive to Renner’s onscreen alter ego (the genetically-enhanced assassin Aaron Cross)

Early reactions to Bourne Legacy trailers have mostly fallen on the positive side. Some people, however, have been hesitant to embrace any continuation of the Bourne franchise – not only because they consider Bourne Ultimatum to be a near-perfect conclusion to the saga of Jason Bourne, but also due to Damon’s lack of involvement (in any significant capacity, at least). For those still on the fence about whether or not they want to check out Legacy in theaters: we have a trio of additional TV spots and an international poster, to help you reach a decision (scroll down to check them out).

Here’s the official lowdown on Bourne Legacy, followed by the latest TV spots and international one-sheet (basically, a foreign-language variation on the domestic poster):

The narrative architect behind the ‘Bourne’film series, Tony Gilroy, takes the helm in the next chapter of the hugely popular espionage franchise that has earned almost $1 billion at the global box office: ‘The Bourne Legacy.’  The writer/director expands the ‘Bourne’ universe created by Robert Ludlum with an original story that introduces us to a new hero (Jeremy Renner) whose life-or-death stakes have been triggered by the events of the first three films.

For ‘The Bourne Legacy,’ Renner joins fellow series newcomers Rachel Weisz, Edward Norton, Stacy Keach and Oscar Isaac, while franchise veterans Albert Finney, Joan Allen, David Strathairn and Scott Glenn reprise their roles.

  1. I am interested in seeing this film. Renner is a quality actor who can puul this off if the writing is solid. Also, it is an incredible supporting cast. I am curious enough to give it a fair shot.

    • Like your comment — I like Jeremy Renner but am only slightly interested in seen the Bourne Legacy. Don’t like Tony Gilroy and Universal for cutting Paul Greengrass out of the deal. I may not see it until it comes out on DVD.

      • I heard that Greengrass wanted to “take a break” from the Bourne franchise.

  2. This movie will be great. There’s few doubters of this film, and for good reason. It has great talent attached to it. After all the talk about the other big movies this year, The Bourne Legacy will be another addition to this big summer and in a few years, we will see Matt Damon and Jeremy Renner both star in a Bourne film, the only question is if Paul Greengrass or Tony Gilroy will direct this 5th film.

  3. Jeremy Renner is a great actor and can pull the role if the script is good and even the supporting cast is amazing.

    I give this movie a fair shoot too.

  4. Jeremy Renner is a great actor and can pull the role off if the script is good and even the supporting cast is amazing.

    I give this movie a fair shot too.

  5. Will absolutely be seeing this film. Renner is an excellent actor and I like that they haven’t tried to recast or reboot the story entirely. Looking great.

  6. looks good

  7. Renner’s such a beast. Although I hope we can see Damon come back to his franchise at some point. Actually, it’d be even cooler to have Renner and Damon tag team to f*** up some bad guys.

  8. I love how the marketing team is not only focusing on the action but story as well. Looks much better than the generic action stuff we’ve been getting(I mean pure action movies like Safe House, not good stuff like the Avengers).
    I’m honestly just as excited for this as I am for TDKR.

  9. This looks awesome and it’s really clever how the events of the Bourne Ultimatum shape the story of this, it’s neither a reboot or reimagining, it’s a continuation which I admire and don’t think has been done before

  10. It would be awesome if Matt damon had a surprise cameo in this. and yeah, am really looking forward to this. though i dont know if i will be able to see it in theaters. its not that i dont want to. its just that i dont have a lot of money so i have to pick and choose which movies i see in theaters.

  11. Matt Damon at the end being like” Aaron Cross? Im Jason Bourne. Guess i wasnt alone after all.” id s*** my pants!

    • Thats actually a good idea, never thought of that …LOL

  12. I liked the books, although by the time I got through the third one, I was getting a bit bored and confused. Generally, I liked the late Ludlum, though. The movies themselves were tolerable, but not like some ultimate thrilling experience or anything. Still, this one looks half-way decent, so I will give it a watch when it comes out on Netflix (my testing ground for movies I am not sure if I will like well-enough to buy the DVD outright or not).

  13. I agree on a few comments above, so glad Tony Gilroy decided to continue the story instead of a reboot. This franchise deserves sequels the rest of the books takes you to the edge of your seat

  14. Nope. Jeremy Renner was the WORST actor in Avengers, Bland, Bland, Bland, Hawkeye. I wanted a 4th Bourne movie but THIS isn’t it. I won’t be seeing it at all.

    • wow…you’re not watching this because of just one movie? If he was that bad an actor then he wouldn’t be a two-time oscar nominee would he? And more than half the movies he stars in have good ratings. The only reason he was bland in The Avengers was because there was no backstory to his character.

    • uuuuhhhhh, okay. Many would disagree with you. He did great in THE AVENGERS!! Besides, it’s not his fault that his character didn’t meet your standards. Blame the director and/or writer for not giving him more screen time and depth. :-/

    • Yeah, he’s a terrible actor (scar-mark).
      Guess you’ve never seen ‘The Hurt Locker’, ‘The Town’, ‘Mission Impossible: Ghost Protocol’, etc, etc.
      I thought he was great in The Avengers (granted, he didn’t really get his due, but I have a sneaking suspicion that it might have been because he spent the majority of the movie being mind controlled by the bad guy ;)), but that’s besides the point.
      He has proven to be a great action star and a terrific actor in almost all of his projects.

  15. Ehh, looks like a typical action flick, only good thing it might have going for it is the exclusion of Greengrass. Not a fan of the thousand frames per second so called “fight scenes” that dont show any fighting, just blurred jumbled messes. I thought the first one was ok (because of the wide shots) even though it strayed very far from the book.

  16. This movie has kinda flown under my (and I’m guessing most people’s) radar with all the other big movies coming out this year, but I’m actually getting more and more exited to see it.
    The trailers look good and the cast speaks for itself.
    I doubt this’ll be an opening weekend viewing for me, but I’ll definitely catch it at the cinema at some point.

  17. “Universal hopes that third time’s a charm with The Bourne Legacy…”

    Ok, that makes no sense. Considering that Ghost Protocol and The Avengers kicked major a$$ in theaters. So to say that third time’s a charm would mean they did not do good…???

    This sounds like an article that Collider or TMZ would write. Sorry guys, but I just had to mention it.
